90-year-old bluesman T Model Ford, who is scheduled to perform Sunday, played a surprise set on a couch in the lobby early Friday. T Model is a Mississippi bluesman who didn't start playing guitar until he was 57. He sipped Jack Daniels and treated curious onlookers to fuzzed-out renditions of Muddy Waters staples "I'm a Man" and "Hoochie Coochie Man." "I'm the baddest guitar player there is," he said. "People walk for miles to see T Model Ford." Stay tuned for more ATP coverage tomorrow.
